International Monobob, Para-Bob and Skeleton School in Sigulda
For eight days the rookie pilots learned about the sleds, had daily track walks with the coaches and three training runs per day each. The IBSF provided coaches and track fees and subsidised accomodation and sled rental.
Responsible for the school was IBSF Para-Sport Coordinator Kristaps Kotans, the former bobsleigh pilot Edgars Maskalans from Latvia acted as track coach. The school was part of the IBSF Pilot Development Programme and the Emerging Nations Support. ©RWH2017
